Buying pet costumes can be expensive and you can only use them once, maybe twice a year. Have you ever thought about buying children dress-up clothes, costumes, or outfits and use them for the your pet?
|(Spencer is very upset that the pizza slices are not real…)|
In 2011, Spencer went as a Pizza Chef! It was only logical since he’s known for stealing a slice here and there when your back is turned.
I went on Etsy.com, a online “marketplace” with over hundreds of thousand seller. I came a cross this one seller, Key2Life, who makes customized aprons and chiefs hats for children. After a brief conversation letting her know what I was looking for, Spencer’s hat and apron were on their way! Once I put them on him I know we had a winning look.
Rounding the look off we made a t-shirt (mens M) that stated “For pickup or delivery call 1-800-SPENCER,” and we reused his boys size 8 jeans from the year before. We also added in a felt pizza. When everything is combined, Spencer becomes our Chief Taste Tester!
After Halloween, kids can play dress-up with the hat, apron, and pizza. And parts of the costume (such as the jeans) can be saved for another Halloween costume.
